Accused Terrorist Still a Pilot

The FBI has declared Joseph Mahmoud Dibee a domestic terrorist involved in attacks carried out by the Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front. So, why does he still have his pilot's license? An apparent lack of communication between the FBI and FAA spotted by The New York Times highlights the challenges the government faces in the fight against terrorism. The Feds believe Dibee has fled to Syria, though that has not stopped him from trying to sell his small single-engine plane on the Internet. After a bipartisan group of politicians expressed concern over the startling revelation, the Transportation and Security Administration announced that it will begin trying to weed out other suspected criminals who are pilots.
